Isn't anyone curious what Dukes, Princes and Kings around the world are wearing? I know I am!

If you have any information on the watches worn by a notorious nobleman, saudi prince or royal post here!

Okay, I'll start: Prince William wears an Omega Seamaster Professional!



As for Prince Harry he wears a Rolex Explorer II.

Vice President Joe Biden also wears an SMP quartz. President Obama used to wear a Tag Heuer, but now wears some Jorg Gray chrono with secret service markings on it.

Prince Charles also favors Breguet (a la Louis XVI, Napoleon Bonaparte, Tsar Alexander the first, etc. etc.)

prince harry wears a rolex explorer II and g-shock (at least from pics posted on the net)
prince william wears an omega SMP (at least from pics posted on the net)
Queen Elizabeth has tons... but this one has always intrigued me. The JLC 101, quote from JLC: "Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 holds the world record of the smallest mechanical movement, consisting of 98 tiny parts totalling barely one gram."

William only has one which is a Mid sized quartz SMP he has been quoted as saying he hates jewellery in response to wearing a wedding ring.

His watch was a gift from his mother which is why he wears it.

I agree about the derailment but I would like to point out this isn't true about ALL the US based members on this thread. By my count, at least six stayed on topic.



And your on-topic contribution?
The Swedish King, Carl XVI Gustav, wears a Swedish wach, Sjoo Sandstrom.

I never said ALL.

For obvious reasons, I can not write any names:

A Swedish Friherre wears an 18K Rolex Submariner.
A Norwegian Lensbaron wears a 18K Rolex Cellini, his wife has a great collection of "18K + bling" Cartiers, one LE Omega.
An Austrian/Hungarian/Czech Count wears several watches ( not at the same time!) amongst them Omega, JLC, Baume Mercier and several lesser brands

Janne, no disrespect intended with my MJ post. It's just that after Queen E, the Duke of Edinburgh, Harry and William, I run out of royals to Google. Suffice it to say, none of those folks are trolling the WUS Sales board looking for a cheap Sub homage.

You run out of Royals? Lots out there!

Some counties that still retain Royalty:
Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Marocco, Luxemburg, Monaco, Lichtenstein,
Many more still have Aristocratic families.

MJ does not even make it on my list of "People with Taste". Awesome musician, though!!
